We ate twice at this small but very good restaurant.It was near to the Puccini recital at Chiesa San Giovanni. Not a large restaurant but we could sit in or out. A large mixed salad with prosciutto, two pasta, wine, water, bread, and two coffees. Total price Euro 40. Good value in our book. It was at this restaurant that... More

We had discovered this restaurant online before we visited Lucca and were delighted with it in reality. We enjoyed our meal outside on a quiet piazza looking up at the wonderful fresco of Basilica of San Frediano. The jazz music and good wine list added to the relaxing atmosphere.

I spent a few weeks in Lucca and stopped in here one evening before a show at the very nearby theater. The food was average and selection very minimal. I had a nice glass of the house wine. Service was fair as was the atmosphere. Wouldn't return.

Carole and Lars have set this wonderful Lucca Wine Bar/Restaurant up to be a really individual and different, very welcoming venue and they really have succeeded. With an exceptionally good representation of the local Lucchese wines, at very reasonable prices and regular entertainment from local musicians who are truly gifted.In their art I can thoroughly recommend this venue to all....

We went here last Friday, a number of local artists / bands played music thoughout the evening, from Opera to Jazz. There was some real talent! The atmosphere was friendly and buzzing, and the owners were very welcoming. Food was also really good, I'm a vegetarian and I enjoyed the choices they offered, but everyone else's dishes went down well... More

The venue is intimate with a vibrant atmosphere and the hosts Lars & Carole are both friendly and professional.

We stopped for a drink prior to the Puccini concert at the church across the street. The performers were in this crowded contemporary cafe having an expresso. I ordered their house drink which had gin, lime juice, and some sort of ginger drink. It was good....

Good spot in Lucca's cathedral district with friendly hosts and specialist beers and wines. High quality light snacking options too and a great place for some people watching!
